Those pictures are Sydney Police's archive and were taken in the 20's. I think that every one of thoses portait are beautiful. I wish I knew what these people have done to be arrested, it would be even more interesting !
Tomasz Pluta, aka Luxogram, is from Poland and works with an old Kiev 88. I'm glad no one told him about the rule of thirds. Squared centred pictures are so much better !
Gregory Colbert's most famous work is probably Ashes and Snow. He travelled in India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Dominica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tonga, Namibia, and Antarctica to film and photograph interactions between human beings and animals. I must say the result is pure beauty.
Irene Suchocki is from Montreal. She went to Italy last year and her picture from the trip are just amazing.
Ailine Liefeld is fascinated by people and their expressions and can spend hours just studying them on public places. I think it show in her photos.
Macrophotography is usually not my favorite. But Magdalena Wasiczek prouved me wrong ! This photographer from Poland makes her garden looks just like a fairy tale.
With In Between, Gustavo Perillo uses windows of trains as frames : people captured are between two words. It's amazing how Gustavo created some poetry from the most common scene of life.
Jakob Wagner takes photos of citys (New York, Londres, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam...) in a quite unique way. I find those shots very powerful (and colorful) and I like the idea of a living city.
Danny Santos II is a weekend photographer who likes to shoot strangers in the streets of Singapore. He's been shooting street for about 2 years now. I wish I had the nerve to stop people in the street and ask for a picture like he does. But even if I succeeded, would I manage to capture regards with so much intensity ? I don't think so !
I had the chance to discover the work of Chris McCaw thanks to a very passionate person : the instant I saw those pictures displayed on a white wall, I fell in love. The emotion is not quite the same with 500 pixels wide images, but it's still there. And the most amazing is the camera used by Mccaw (see the last picture) : it's huge !
Jordan Matter began in the spring of 2009 a collection of NYC dance photographs. There were no trampolines or other devices used for these images, just thousands of hours of training!
The feeling of freedom that comes out of thoses images is impressing !
Each summer, Olivier Roller takes photos of Juliette. They spend their summer in the same house. So, at the end of the stay, when everyone is hurried by the departure, they become isolated, and he does her portrait. And each year, he and us see her become a woman. He imagines the end of this story when he will photography her with her daughter aged eleven.
The serie about Juliette is my favorite of Olivier's work, but I would recommend you to check out his entire website !
You would think that taking only black & white square shots is too much constraints. Well, certainly not for Josef Hoflehner ! This post contains a bit more pictures than usual because it was too hard for me to select my favorites one.
Lara Alegre loves photography, and you can really tell just by looking at her picture. They all are telling a story about a person, or a trip. They are humans.
Taking a look at Oscar's photos is like taking a walk with him and his girlfriend. In one hour, I have been with them in Honk-Hong, Austria, Czech Republic...
Rune Guneriussen sure knows how to take the most of great landscapes of Norway ! His installations are mysterious, but also full of poetry and humor !
Those pictures were taken by William Pennington and Lisle Updike in Colorado into the 1910s ... ! 1910s ! The quality is so amazing that I almost threw my digital camera into the garbage (almost).
I didn't found out very much about Lucem except that she is a 20sh something girl from Moscow.
Yang Ya-ching is not the average 27 years old Taiwanese girl. She's currently studying music in Paris and has the crazy project to kiss 100 men in Paris. I'm not quite sure if she's finished as I don't understand her blog but I find the pictures full of cuteness. On a different note, she plays quite well the piano.
People behind the Cuba Gallery are actually from New Zeland. I don't know much about them but I like how they're not afraid to post-process their images.
Born in London, Bruno Dayan has lived in France, Canada and Japan. I wonder where he got all the inspiration for those mises-en-scènes.
What could be best than some peaceful and zen pictures before starting a new year ?
Those were taken in temple sanctuary in Kyoto. Please visit the original website where you'll find high resolution photos.
Manhattanhenge, also known as Manhattan Solstice is when the sunset in Manhattan is perfectly aligned with the east-west streets in this borough's grid. It happens twice a year, and I find it quite pretty. Hope I will have the chance to observe the phenomenon one day !

Dalla, is a young woman (I think as I don't speak islandic) from Iceland. She has a great eye, and lives in a beautiful place. That's the recipe for unique photos full of softness and poetry.
Stephan Vanfleteren mostly does portraits, always in black and white. A lot of his picture were taken in his home country: Belgium. If I had two words to describe his work, I would say strong and beautiful.
Emilie's work is full of nostalgia and magic which goes pretty well with the faded tints of polaroids.
I'm very fond of portraits. Weirdly, I prefer women portraits, but when I came across Sexties's men portraits I must say I find them pretty food. So here are some :
SATO Shintaro wanders the streets of Tokyo days and night to find fire escape and shoot the city. His favorite time of the day is when artificial light and natural light are mixed.
The Kowloon Walled City was located just outside Hong Kong, China during British rule. A former watchpost to protect the area against pirates, it was occupied by Japan during World War II and subsequently taken over by squatters after Japan’s surrender. Neither Britain nor China wanted responsibility for it, so it became its own lawless city.
Its population flourished for decades, with residents building labyrinthine corridors above the street level, which was clogged with trash. The buildings grew so tall that sunlight couldn’t reach the bottom levels and the entire city had to be illuminated with fluorescent lights. It was a place where brothels, casinos, opium dens, cocaine parlors, food courts serving dog meat and secret factories ran unmolested by authorities. It was finally torn down in 1993 after a mutual decision was made by British and Chinese authorities, who had finally grown wary of the unsanitary, anarchic city and its out-of-control population.
Sarah Roads is actually two people: a husband and wife photographers. I love their portraits, and I wish I could find nice spot like that in my town !
Annecy is one of my favorite cities in France. I have so many memories around this lake. Plus, the place is as gorgeous, in summer, winter or under the fog.

I don't know if I prefer Somewhair's self portraits, or macro. But both are so sensible and poetic that I really don't get tired of it...
A husband writes about his beautiful pregnant wife, after taking pictures of her. Plus, she's dressed really nice.
